Orange County does not get the snowy and cold weather that many other parts of the country have to face during this time of year. Thus, drivers in Orange County don't usually have to worry about driving on icy roads. However, that does not necessarily mean that drivers will never face slippery or otherwise difficult road conditions.
Any kind of motor vehicle accident can result in a variety of monetary costs that can take a heavy toll on a person's finances. But motorcycle accidents can be especially costly due to the serious injuries that a rider can suffer from an accident.
By now, most adults in Orange County are probably aware that on Nov. 8, voters in California passed Proposition 64, which legalized marijuana for recreational use. While the full effects of this in the years to come may be uncertain, some people are concerned about what this could mean when it comes to auto accidents. State legislator Tom Lackey has those concerns, and is now trying to pass a law that would allow police officers to use roadside machines to test whether drivers are under the influence of marijuana.
Most households in Orange County have a variety of household products that can be dangerous to people. Although most of these products never will harm anyone as long as they are used correctly, sometimes a flaw in the product can make them unsafe. Household products can also pose health risks if the consumer does not understand the risks of potential danger, due to insufficient warnings on the product.
The holiday season is officially under way, which means that many people in Orange County will be attending parties and other functions throughout the next few weeks. Some people might have concerns that this time of year can be more dangerous for driving because parties related to the holidays can lead to drunk driving incidents. While this may be true, the holidays can also mean greater potential for fatal truck accidents.
